not so much before the attacks. does this cold war mentality that president obama talked about still hamper relations between the u.s. and russia? >> it appears to have been a problem in this case but really shouldn't. we've had relations with countries around the world which have been pretty rocky and yet on the counterterrorism level, it's been very, very good cooperation. even when i was in office at times that some other countries were not necessarily seeing eye to eye on iraq or other issues, at the law enforcement level there was always a lot of exchange of information because it's mutually important. this is important to the russians as it is to us. i would put some emphasis on making sure that our relationships with the russians or anybody else at this level are being maintained properly and so there is a good flow of cooperation. >> i've heard talk that one of the reasons why it might not have gone as swimmingly as it should have is because russia is always trying to convince the u.s. that the chechens with whom they're involved in this ugly, bloody war for years and years,

talked about the decision, should be do health care or not? and obama'sed a sliders saying do not do health care. what the public wants is you to focus on the economy. unemployment is 10%. that's where you need put your efforts. don't want you being diverted. and what essentially persuaded obama for him to decide i'm doing health care anywhere was his legacy, providing for greatness, he needed health care, a goal that eluded presidents for a century. so, two members of his coalition presidency spent their terms locking horns they wouldn't be able to have the kind of achievements, establish the kind of record that would have important legacy for the ages. so, that's why i think it would work out. it's not only my fairly educate guess but we have other support. switzerland i like to use as an example. does it work anywhere else? in switzerland they're executive branch they call a federal council, hat seven department heads, and they possess equal decisionmaking authority. there's no first among equals. they really are truly equals. they rotate through the presidency for one year term a

have the kind of grand bargain that president obama is talking about with the republicans where you cut social security and medicare and in exchange the republicans agree to raise taxes and you have ten more years of austerity. i think in the next year or two until the economy gets back on its feet, you need public spending to get people back to work, rebuild the infrastructure and make it more competitive and when you get back to something close to full employment, people have jobs and are paying taxes, then you can reduce the debt because you have a higher growth rate and the debt ratio comes down on its own accord. that's the time to rebalance. >> woodruff: would that be your remedy? >> i think the headline for listeners is not what i want but what has happened. if you look at the cbo's unless of what president obama and the republicans have agreed to and they stabilized the debt at a reasonable level about the average of the last 20 years relatively quickly. my guess is given that there's a lot of posturing in washington but they are not going to do much more either way. there won't

. that is what president obama is talking about. i will continue working with congress to pursue the proposal the president put forward in his budget, a proposal that is fully paid for. today's report emphasizes that when it comes too early education, quality does matter. that quality means more than just learning number and the abc's. it means children get the nutrition and preventive care they need to stay healthy, building social and emotional skills, engaging parents to make sure they are nurturing their children's day development. over the last four years, we have pursued an historic effort to raise the bar on early education. we have had an unprecedented an incredible cooperation with the department of education. that includes the race to the top early learning challenge and a range of staffers in the head start program, including sharing best practices on training and for economic and making sure finding competition goes to the strongest sentence. as of this report shows, we have more work to do in that area. we have come a long way in the next decade. we are committed to doing what we
could potentially work with is not a great example , but to talk more. president obama mentioned there are now 100 high-tech firms on the west bank. i interviewed this israeli venture capitalist. cisco has invested in them. it is an area of the economy that can and should grow. what is the answer in terms of u.s. policy? first of all i think we have to scale back we're trying to do. i mentioned corruption and no a specifically name the karzai government that has been a huge impedimenta things we try to achieve. hopefully it will be one of his brothers. we don't -- you know, if we don't feel that we have a local partner i think we should hold back in our aid efforts. one thing that we can do is create more incentives like its european union system that was used in turkey. two years ago the secretary clinton used the term economic statecraft. any of you heard that all? this is journalists fall. we don't write about these things. she declared in 2011 in a speech in new york that economic tradecraft was now at the heart of american foreign policy. she defined economic statecraft as c
because of -- when you talk about obama care, it has been a big issue. has it changed your perspective, slowed anything down or does it matter? >> it slowed down the sales due to uncertainty in health care providers and what they can pay for and what happens with medicaid and medicare spending. to really deal with long-term demographics. >> you mentioned immigration, visa issue and engineers. >> yes. >> we have people -- companies constantly talk about that. are there really not enough engineers in this country? you can't find them efficiently? what is the real problem? >> there are not coming through the programs. >> you cannot find them for your specific issue? >> we can't find enough. it is very, very difficult. >> it's a great career. but you go back. like when the president said you have a drink with mitch mcconnell. come engineering, any of those things. i wonder how do we get people to realize what a great future they would have if they boit the bullet. how do we do it? or do we let all the foreigners. >> i've been told, and i could be wrong on this, there are two levels. there'
's what president obama is talking about. that's why we'll continue to work with congress to pursue the proposal the president put forward in his budget, a proposal that once again is fully paid for. today's report emphasizes that when it comes to early education, quality does matter. and that quality means more than just learning numbers and the abcs. it means insuring kids get the nutrition and preventive care they need to stay healthy, building social and emotional skills, engaging parents to headache -- to make sure they're nurturing their children's development. over the last four years, we've pursued an historic effort to raise the bar on quality in early education, and we've had unprecedented and incredible coordination and collaboration with the department of education. that includes the race to the top early learning challenge, and it also includes a range of efforts in the head start program including sharing best practices on training and curriculum and making sure that funding competition goes to the strongest centers. so as in this report -- as this report shows, we hav

air and water come to apply yet. you were talking just a few moments ago about obama care being implemented over the course of president obama's second term. but the reason that hhs is so much lower on that list is that a lot of those regulations haven't kicked in yet. good wham of a cost that wasn't estimated. when obama care was passed giving authority to hhs which benefits essential for cover. ones that became the most croferls became essential. every employer of a certain size provide see contraception cor-j -- coverage for all of their employees. that is enormous cost in terms of the number of the things that are going to be passed on to the rest of us higher premiums. >> tucker: people are ordered around what kind of light bulbs, toilet head. shower head. turn point people don't get to make their own choices. greg, thank you for being with us. >> good to be with you. >> alisyn: don't fear the loch ness monster. new monster lurking in the water. stay tuned. i know this is your favorite? >> bill: in a body of water near you. money, cars and clothes but don't want to work for

those stories. we are talking to you about your view of president obama's second term. let's get to the catskills, new york, republican line. caller: i was going to comment on the middle east. wants to closee guantanamo bay is got backfire. what is going on in the middle east with a iran and israel, egypt, the moslem brotherhood syria, is turning into a tinderbox. israel will do something with iran soon and we will need that prison opened. host: troy, alabama, independent line. confused ande get they need to go back to school. with people'sicks minds the way you screen calls. if you look at what the president said yesterday, you look at article one of the constitution, section 7 -- it will explain to the job of the president and the congress. the congress is supposed to come up with devyn and the president is supposed to sign the bills. if the house and senate did their job, they are not doing it and they are embarrassing america. they don't know anything. all your callers don't know anything. you'll find the right answers if you read and you will see the truth. all these comment
as he has through the presidency between issues and crises not of his choice, obama seemed like a spectator as if he resigned himself to a reactive presidency. we have always talked about the thunder heads in congress. >> even when you were there. >> the exception. >> can i correct you? especially when i was there. there were more thunder heads per square inch. >> i covered congress before you, joe, it was even worse then. >> we are at a strange point where the president is not even six months into his second term and he already looks like a lame duck to many people who are top analyst. >> this is a familiar pattern sometimes in second terms but if you look back at six months and where barack obama thought he might be today, i hate to use this analogy but he is like my washington nationals. expectations are pretty high and barely keeping his head above water. i agree with sam's examples but the sequestration itself -- >> isn't it fascinating, al? i remember a lot of us talking to the president before and talking to president's people, they really believed that the re-election wo
to take the reins there is janet yellin, the vice chair. she is who gets most often talked about as a leading candidate. some others are less widely talked about, roger ferguson, larry summers has the resume for it but is a polarizing figure. i think president obama will have plenty of options as he starts to weigh this decision in the months ahead. >> it does sound like janet yellin is the front-runner from the people we've been hearing from. tell me, do you think when it does come time for the federal reserve to pull the stimulus out of the economy, and let's say she is the fed chief, what kind of job do you think she'll do? because it's a very tricky -- it's a very tricky exit strategy to have to executes here. >> yeah, you know, the politics, the technical stuff is one side. you raise interest rates? can you sell off this bond portfolio they've accumulated? $3 trillion a huge task. but have i more confidence in their ability to handle the technical aspects than i do making the right decision. when do you begin this exit? when does the time that inflation is a risk, financial
forget during the second debate president obama mentioned planned parenthood for times and talked about are lifesaving work. but the interesting thing is that evening his message went beyond talking to dependence and the folks that were falling the back-and-forth of the political campaign. it actually reached millions of ordinary americans because just a few days later there was a woman that showed up at a planned parenthood health center in houston texas. i'm glad all of you are here today. [applause] so this is the story. had been years since she had an exam and she found a lump in her breast she didn't know where to go. the physician said who referred you? she said i heard president obama say on tv that i could get an exam and planned parenthood.

's talk about some of the programs. earlier this week diane black, a republican from tennessee tweeted this. under president obama, food stamp enrollment has increased at ten times the rate of job creation. now, we know the spending on entitlements is expanding at the expense of discretionary spending things like education and infrastructure, but americans don't trust the government to make those decisions. what is the alternative? >> we have to figure out how to afford the government we want and want the government we can afford. that means some consistency. a lot of the issue here is not with the national debt but our unwillingness on the republican side to pay for it with revenue increases, tax increases, and on the democratic side the unwillingness to make some cuts in favor of the entitlement programs. we need to do both. president obama in recent months has been offering a compromise saying yes, we will cut some of our favorite programs. you've got to raise some of the revenues on folks you don't want to raise it on. republicans have simply been saying no a
